We all know those situations where someone says something and it leaves us completely flabbergasted. 3 hours later, when our brains are working at the normal speed again, it hits us: the perfect, witty, intelligent, fitting remark that would stop the other person in their tracks and put an end to their ___________ [chose word like "stupid jokes", "abuse", "insults",...].
Or it might probably be the perfect, intelligent, unbeatable argument.
[Or it might be the funny, charming and intelligent thing we couldn't say to the guy/girl we like. But that's another story.]
And sometimes, even after three hours, days, months, I’m still screaming inside my head “FUCK YOU!” and I feel like my brain will never work at the same speed again.
